Either Katy Perry and John Mayer are on-and-off, or the couple have been staying low-key for most of the year. The “Hot and Cold” couple were seen at a Hollywood party in the early hours of Thursday morning.
John Mayer, 38, and Katy Perry, 31, were spotted by The Nice Guy restaurant and lounge in West Hollywood, according to a TMZ report. The media outlet was the first to report about the couple’s sighting. When the crowd got quiet, Perry reportedly pumped them up with her rendition of “Natural Woman.”
An inside source told E! News that the couple were there with their friends. Another source confirmed that same detail to PEOPLE. However, the couple looked less than romantic, according to PEOPLE’s source. That’s probably because they didn’t want to gross out their friends with some PDA during dinner.
“They were both with a group of friends. Not together or anything flirty or love interest-type. They got a table together about 10 of them in total and went straight there after John’s show.”
Katy stepped out in a colorful maxi print dress, while John opted for a black wool coat. Just a day before their date night, the “Dark Horse” singer took to Instagram to share a cozy photo of herself in a gray fuzzy robe. In her post, Katy also shared her love for the super soft and warm loungewear brand.
“As a robe aficionado (for proof, see every BTS photo or video ever captured of me on tour), I decided to extend my obsession for a constant state of coziness to my friends & family this Christmas by gifting them their own monogrammed one. I wanna give a shout out annnnnnd I guess share my adult blanket with everyone this winter. For better cocooning check out Barefoot Dreams. If you see me in the grocery store just wearing this, know that I’m happy AF.”
The last time they were seen together was when they attended Girls star Allison Williams’ summer wedding. John and Katy were seen holding hands and looking quite content with one another.
“John and Katy looked happy. They held hands and sat next to each other during the wedding ceremony.”
Prior to that sighting, the couple were spotted having a good time at Disneyland where they were seen “walking around the park holding hands.” Even fans shared videos and photos of the couple enjoying some of the theme park rides. An inside source told Us Weekly that Mayer was intent on getting Perry back, although it’s not clear why they broke up in the first place.
“He worked his way back into her good graces,” the insider added. “He’s trying not to mess it up.”
Whether or not Katy Perry and John Mayer will spend New Year’s Eve together remains up in the year. It’s highly unlikely since Perry will perform at a private concert at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel, according to Maxim, while Mayer will perform with his new band Dead & Company at The Forum in Los Angeles. His band previously performed there on Wednesday, just hours before Perry and Mayer were reunited in Hollywood. It looks like they had to ring in the new year on a different night.
Katy Perry and John Mayer began dating in 2012, and have been dating on-and-off since. Mayer began dating the pop star two years after he dated her arch nemesis Taylor Swift. They also continue to leave fans scratching their heads over the status of their confusing relationship. What are your thoughts on Perry and Mayer getting back together?
